Always popular with both locals and tourists, The all new Lakes Hotel has been completely restored to the high standard of its heyday in the 40’s, where people from the busy cities of Sydney and Newcastle would come to escape the rush and bustle of city life.

The renovation to the Lakes Hotel was a complete refurbishment of this seaside hotel. The concept was to give it a beach vintage look, with a fresh, casual and summer look to the interior fitout on a modest budget. The new large new banquette dining area and bistro seating niche provide a relaxed and inviting atmosphere. The feel is generally summery and approachable for this popular resort town.


Bon Uno Bentwood – White

Still handmade in Europe by Bon as it has been for over 135 years. Crafted from 100% FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified solid European Beech wood from sustainably managed plantation forests. Finished with EU certified water based stains and laquers, with industrial adhesives and hex head bolt construction for heavy duty commercial use.



There is extensive use of reclaimed timber, custom graphics on timber, bamboo style feature posts , a light coloured aesthetic and a fresh approach to the colour of the vintage look furnishings. The mix of brightly coloured furnishings provide a burst of colour and enhance the beach aesthetic.

Nufurn supplied a lot of custom made furniture for this customer including the indoor furniture, outdoor furniture and the beautifully coloured European bentwood barstools by Bon.

Aëon Commercial Verden

The combination of the oiled bronze wall bracket and glass lampshade gives the Aëon Commercial Verden design a sense of history. The refined wall light is illuminated with a G9 240v lamp so there is no need for a transformer. Its ease of installation and finesse provide a good lighting solution for domestic or commercial applications.
